Nature of Business

As one of Ireland's largest law firms, William Fry offers unrivalled legal and tax expertise across the full breadth of the business sector. We advise a substantial number of leading Irish and international companies, covering both the public and private sector.

Our head office is in Dublin and in May 2019 we opened an office in Cork, enabling us to further service our clients in the Cork and wider Munster region. We have offices in London, New York, Silicon Valley and San Francisco and a global law firm network to service our clients at home and abroad.  Our capability is enhanced by our alliance with Tughans, Northern Ireland’s largest law firm, through which we provide an all island solution.

With a staff of over 450, the Firm operates a large international practice and regularly acts in cases involving other jurisdictions, including: the United Kingdom, the United States, Asia, the Netherlands, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Poland and Eastern Europe.

One of the key factors of the service provided by the Firm is the depth of experience and level of expertise it can bring to bear for the benefit of clients. The affairs of every client are assigned to a Partner who will be responsible for guiding our legal team in creating effective working relationships and developing solutions to problems.

The Firm's priorities are focused on the need to achieve results for clients. Continued investment in people, technology and research maintain the Firm's ability to provide practical and prompt solutions, while devoting exacting attention to detail.

We pride ourselves on the outstanding service we provide to our clients and the resulting longevity of our client relationships. We are never complacent and strive for excellence at all levels of the Firm.  We are equally proud of the recognition we have garnered for this ethos, in the form of awards, rankings and recommendations.

We are an acknowledged leader in our core departmental areas - Corporate, Mergers & Acquisitions, Litigation & Dispute Resolution, Real Estate, Banking & Finance, Projects & Construction, Asset Management & Investment Funds, Insurance, Technology, Tax, and Employment & Pensions - and we augment this with a wide range of specialist practice areas many of which are specific to industry sectors.

Year on year, we are ranked by the leading international legal directories, including the Legal 500 EMEA, Chambers Global & Europe, IFLR1000 and Who's Who Legal, as one of Ireland's top corporate law firms.
